Louis M. Martini Cabernet Sauvignon 'Lot 1' 2017

Product description

Lot No.1 is Cabernet Sauvignon at its peak form of expression. Its history dates back over 70 years when Louis M. Martini began a practice that would become a hallmark of his winery.

While tasting through Cabernet aging in the cellar, he began selecting exceptional lots, choosing ones that showcased the essence of Cabernet Sauvignon character and designating them to craft his finest wine.

95 Points - James Suckling

A soft, juicy red with licorice and aniseed undertones to the blueberries and sage. Candy. Medium to full body with agility and elegance.

94 Points - Wine Spectator

A rich, lush style, with creamed plum, blueberry and warmed blackberry compote flavors gliding along, laced with cocoa and warm earth notes. A black licorice note drapes over the fruit on the finish, and there's a violet note hanging in the background. Large-scaled and well-defined. 

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast

Woody, herbal and spicy in black pepper and clove, this bold, complete wine is layered and complex in structure. Notes of tobacco, dark chocolate, iron and meat highlight a muscular, grippy style that is built for aging.
